Waterproof Laminate Flooring
What is the difference between Waterproof and Water-Resistant?
Waterproof and water-resistant laminate are made like traditional laminate flooring, but with a slight difference in the core layer. The core layer of most laminate flooring is typically compressed high-density fiberboard, where waterproof laminate has a PVC plastic core that is entirely waterproof.
- Waterproof laminate means that the water will never be able to penetrate the flooring, no matter how much time as passed.
- Water-resistant laminate typically means that there is a top surface that is highly resistant to moisture (hence the name). If you can’t get to a spill right away, the water-resistance will help you buy some time before it soaks through, but it will soak in eventually.
